Agriculture

Agriculture both contributes to and is affected by climate change.

 

Climate change is reducing crop yields, lessening the nutritional quality of cereals and lowering livestock productivity. This is in the context of an international food crisis, whereby around 9% of the global population is hungry.

 

We’re bringing together current and future leaders to help develop sustainable farming, cultivation and land use solutions to reduce global emissions and provide food security for all.

"...This is the challenge: eliminate waste, maximise food produced, re-use and re-purpose food surplus, transition to regenerative approaches, adopt new technologies, and restore nature. It is a multi-layered challenge; requiring an ability to focus on specific issues whilst retaining a system-wide perspective."
